taco soup

a recipe by

I reviewed several recipes and took some from this one or that one to come up with my own version (that didn't make a huge batch). My husband is a picky eater and I wanted to come up with a recipe to take us away from the same old meals. He liked it and said I could make it again. I am planning on trying it with chicken.
